The River Valley Garden Club welcomes Frank Flaherty as the speaker for our February meeting. Frank is the manager of the Wild Birds Unlimited Nature Shop (www.sacramento.wbu.com), 2561 Fair Oaks Boulevard (Loehmann’s Plaza), Sacramento.

With over 20 years experience as an active backyard birder, Frank will be speaking on how to attract birds to our backyards. He will be discussing different seed types, feeder types and configurations (they can be simple or quite elaborate!), and landscaping that will attract birds to your yard. He will have examples of pole system feeders that offer flexibility and are quite attractive as well.

The RVGC meets Tuesday evening, February 28th, at the Rancho Murieta Association building. Membership, refreshments, and social time begins at 6:30 p.m. Meeting starts at 7:00 p.m.

In addition to monthly speakers, RVGC members enjoy workshops and outings, discounts at local nurseries and businesses, and many opportunities to give back to our community.
